Well, it's been a while since I posted anything and thought I'd give an update.
My next mods are going to be rallycross specific as I'm loving the dirt a LOT more than tarmac. I just installed King Springs on my OEM struts that lifted my car about 1.25in. They are technically stiffer than stock but they are progressive, which I actually like. The bumps and potholes I used to feel when I ran over them no feel like nothing, which is awesome. And it's still composed in the corners. Have yet do do a rallycross on them.
I do plan on the the last strut inserts that Feal makes for two reasons. One, my front struts are going out. Two, the inserts will be valved for gravel usage which should really help the tires stay on the ground better for rallycross. Feal also makes coilovers, the 441 that are talored to rallycross, and if I didn't already have my springs I would have gone that route.
Will also be getting skid plates from Primitive Racing, and new 15" Team Dynamic wheels. Also get my light bar coated with truck bed liner. The powder coating was starting to flake off so I wanted something durable, so far so good!
Two photos that I have so far of the lift, more will be coming after I get Farquad detailed.
Before and after
Some other photos before the lift.
Broke more of my front bumper... Hit a bigger whole during rallycross and my light bar bent into the bumper.
A true subaru I love it!

Interesting! Like the Hella's!
Whelp, did some ice racing.
Making some studded tires. 174 bolt's in each tire. Tedious work... Have to drill a hole for the bolts to go through, add a washer to the inside, add some gunk to help seal it, drill/push the bolt though the tire, add another washer and lock nut, tighten it down, then sharpen the bolt.
But, the hard work is totally worth it!
good stuff mate !
